Young scientists are an important engine for future research. The Jülich Aachen Research Alliance honours the achievements of young scientists by awarding the young scientists with the "JARA Excellent Junior" and "JARA Best Master" prizes.
The Institute of Crystallography (IfK) at RWTH Aachen University and the Institute of Energy and Climate Research (IEK) -6 of Forschungszentrum Jülich cooperate, inter alia, within the framework of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) funded joint project "Conditioning" (Fundamental studies for immobilizing long-lived radionuclides by incorporation into repository relevant ceramics).
Increasing population and growing industries and the associated increased energy consumption in emerging Asian economies result in enhanced emissions of greenhouse gases, ozone-depleting substances, and pollution in this region. IEK-7 has already published some basic studies related to the topic of transport processes in the region of the Asian monsoon (Konopka et al., JGR, 2010; Ploeger et al., JGR, 2013; Vogel et al, ACP, 2014; Ploeger et al., ACP, 2015; Vogel et al, ACP, 2015).
In “Magnetic Skyrmions for Future Nanospintronic Devices”, or “MAGicSky” for short, scientists from France, Germany, Great Britain and Switzerland are pursuing an innovative concept for novel computer components based on magnetic vortices known as skyrmions.
